And thai foes for all his assistants! Not to mention the other members of the athletic department who labor '"""'" uin Time was when the members expenses uirguga we saie-oz weir coasi vonierence pasaea a rule. Flayers may receive only four tickets free of charge. The individual schools have gotten around this regulation, to a degree, by issuing four additional tickets upon payment of the government tax. ' Sale of Bow! Seats Curtailed But whatis left? Let's stipulate that the player is going to give away only two seats to his parents, we'll say. That leaves him six. Let's say that somebody is willing to give him $50 for each seat. Six times $50 is $300. That's $50 more than the official allotment to each L.S.U. player, who also has a couple of tickets to dispose of to his friends. It wasn't to long ago that a Rose Bowl player from the Pacifie Coast could trade in his tickets for a. new car. The conference took care of that when it limited the number of seats to be issued to each man. When we stated that a player might sell his six tickets for $50 each we were mentioning the optimum figure. Any seats -.old by the Cal players prior to the last Rose Bowl contest probably went for a figure closer to their face value of $550 than the hypothetical price of $50. The Pacific Coast Conference does not pay bonuses te it's coach ei, either, California gave Pappy Waldorf a new contract after the 1949 Rose Bowl game and, supposedly, the salaries of his assistants were boosted. But there was no bonus, no new contract for Pappy, and no change in the renewal of the lone-year contracts of Pappy's assistants after the late, lamentable affair in the Arroyo Seeo which saw the Bears dropping IT to 14 decision te Ohio Stat. The University of California, as an adherent to the NCAA sanity code, doesnt believe in paying anything beyond the direct expense of quarters, meals and transportation to its athletes. As a member of the Pacific Coast Conference, Cal can't pay a bonus to a coach. Not Out-Played, Just Out-Marched Yet the university authorities can accept the resignation of Prof. C. C. Cushing, director of the Cal band for the last 15 years, after the Bear horn tooters were out-marched in Pasadena by Qhio State. We won't say the Bears were out-played. Matter of fact, after the initial appearance, of the marching Buckeyes, nobody listened. The bravest men to walk on the Rose Bowl turf were the California bandsmen, because they had to march before 100,000 people Immediately after the superlative Buckeyes had quick stepped their way to the sidelines. Comparisons are always odious, and this one was more so than usual. Undoubtedly. Cal can field a band that compares favorably In every way with the Ohio State organisation. Bat It will take time, money and a lot of hard work. The Ohio State musicians follow the same hours of practice as the football team. If yon happen to be an Ohio State undergraduate and weren't good enough to make the frosh band you wouldn't have much of a chance for the varsity. The question is, does Cal want to devote the same amount 'of time, thought and energy, not to mention money, to developing a band that won't, to quote the words of a university president, "smell.- mustard yellow pants or not? If even a fraction of the effort should be devoted to Cal's band we it own with anv organization, For that matter, after losing two . , , . , . n fasacrena wny wring up iwiuau i So far as those mustard yellow men could wear lilac and old lace and still make a good impression. Personally, this department is voting for Prof. Cushing, who had nothing to do with the color of the pants and was never informed that what the Bears need most is a drill sergeant If that's what they want, let them apply to the R.O.T.C Just as Ohio State did. Cal Spends Million on Stadium Meanwhile, in spite of the conference rule against bonuses and the NCAA sanity code which prohibits the squandering of loose cash on football players. California manages to find ways end means to distribute its football dollars. By August I of this year the AS.U.C. will have spent Just a shade under one million bucks ($1,000,000, that is) on the rehabilitation of Memorial stadium. If. as one of the original stadium subscribers, you have failed to notiee any Increase In comfort or space do not become wed.

ONLY 12 PLAYERS USED The closeness of the game can be best described with the fact that each coach used only six players. Brown captured top scoring honors for the afternoon with five field goate and three free throws. Jim Bird Was high for Alameda with 10. Larry Fiscus, who pumped to nine points for the losers, was credited with playing a good all-around game. The bee contest was won by Ala meda, 31 to 26.

Vince, the smallest man on the Tech basketball team at five-foot seven, gave the Bulldogs their second straight win ln Oakland Athletic League competition yesterday afternoon when he sank a field goal In the final seconds of the game to turn the tables on visiting Castlemont 33 te 32. Other action in the city league yesterday afternoon found Fremont squeezing past hosting San Leandro, 29 to 27, and McClymonds dumping Oakland. 47 to 35, at the Filbert Street Boys' Club. The thriller at Tech might have not been so close had the Bulldogs connected with a few of their charity tosses. Coach Frank Johns' squad, which had to come from behind to nab the verdict, made good on only one of 18 free throws. OFF TO SLOW START The Bulldogs got off to a slow start, trailing at the end of the first quarter, 6 to 4. However, they began hitting their stride in the next canto and left the floor with a 18 to 13 lead. Castlemont came back strong in the third quarter and moved into the final frame in a 20 to 20 tie. The Knights, whose two-three sone defense pressed the Tech forwards continually, ran up a X7 to ZO lead in the first minute of the final period and with less than a minute remaining were ahead. 32 to 29. Castlemont captured the jayvee game, 31 to 26. Guard Gil Perry provided the margin of difference in the San Leandro contest. The stubborn San Leandro Five had a 27 to 26 lead with less than two minutes remaining. Perry's field goal came after Guard Ron Tomsic tied the score with a free throw. Fremont won the opener, 34-27.

Spot - NEW YORK, Jan. 1L-V-Thi NCAA's special bowl committee, having completed its survey on post-season, football games, is now putting its microscope to some other sports, particularly basketbalL "We're looking into some of ' the big basketball tournaments not under conference or NCAA sponsorship . and those double header games in the . big city arenas." said Victor Schmidt, committee head. "It's merely exploratory action, however, and we dont plan to take any steps right away. "Mainly we'd like to see where the money goes. We want to investigate team schedules and some of those extended seasons. After we gather the data we may make some recommendations.'' BIG TOURNEYS Schmidt who also is commissioner of the Pacific Coast Conference, declined to put a finger on any specific promotion. He indicated, however, his probe probably would include such tournaments as the National Invitation at Madison Square Garden, the Christmas holiday affairs and the big doubleheaders in New York, Boston, San Francisco and Chicago, among ether places. He said other sports would undergo similar scrutiny which may result in some future NCAA action. The committee has a six-point proposal in regard to bowl games to lay before the . convention Saturday. BOWL PROVISIONS The provisions are: 1 The sponsoring committee must include at least two NCAA representatives. Z An NCAA school can compete in no more than one postseason game daring an academic year. 3 Game officials must be mutually agreed upon by competing schools. 4 Competing schools must be allocated not less than one third of the game tickets, with each school given a chance at one sixth. 5 Competing schools must get at least 80 per cent of the proceeds. 6 The post-season game must be certified by a special extra events cornrnittee of the NCAA, which will police bowl play. Schmidt said his committee's newest probe may bring other sports under similar restrictives.
